Féile Ceoil

Last night first class and the school band took part in Féile Ceoil in the Dean Crowe Hall. We sang songs, recited poems and played music. We were very excited and a little nervous, but we really enjoyed it!

Lá Glas

We really enjoyed “Lá Glas” today. 

Ms  Rigney’s 5th class read a novel as Gaeilge a few weeks ago. 

Mrs  Conway wrote a drama based on the book, and we performed it today. It was called  “An nathair agus Na Spéaclaí.” We really enjoyed it! It was great fun. 

Each class performed a “cluiche clós” or a “playground game.” 

 

Mr . Glennon : Caith agus Síos 

Ms . Dooley : A Gharda , A Gharda 

Mr . Keller : Chuaigh Mamó chun an tsiopa 

Ms . Egan & Mrs .Finn : Teidí  Béar      

Mrs.Dunne :  Ceann, gulalainn, glúin is cos

Mrs. O Connell : Isteach is amach trí na cloginí gorma

Ms . Quigley : Taobh le chéile 

Ms. Payne : Míonna na Bliana 

Mr . Dolan : Téigh abhaile 

                      Míonna na Bliana

 

Then our school band, “Banna Ceoil “,  played some traditional Irish tunes . They were excellent ! 

Five girls did some Irish dancing.

We would like to wish you all a very “Happy St . Patricks Day ”

“Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig daoibh go léir” 

Slán libh!

St Patrick’s Week

Published by under 1st & 2nd Class

This week the children have been preparing for St Patrick’s Day. In groups, they made posters of the facts they have been learning about St Patrick. They painted the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow which we all decided a trip to Florida would suffice if we ever found it. The children in second class also did some work on persuasive language on topics such as ‘children should have a longer break time in school’. This was a statement we all agreed on and 2nd class had some very convincing points to make.

Oscar Week

Published by under 1st & 2nd Class

The children in 2nd class took to the stage this week. Their task was to role-play a situation at the Doctors which included arranging an appointment, greeting the Receptionist, questioning by the Doctor and examining the Patient. Luckily, 2nd class have some growing actors and actresses who showed great communication skills, confidence and cooperation. They even got a few laughs out of the class, maybe we will see them on the red carpet in years to come!!

Spring into action!

Published by under 1st & 2nd Class

We have been busy learning about Spring in first class. We made ladybirds from clay and painted them beautiful colours. We are taking part in the sow and grow project. We planted runner beans, cress and baby carrots. Hopefully they will grow soon. We are going to taste what we grow and we are getting hungry!

Science -Living In A Material World

Published by under 1st & 2nd Class

The children in 2nd class carried out an experiment to see ‘what material would make the best damp course?’ Old houses tend to be damp because they have no damp course. In modern housing, a layer of material is placed between bricks to stop the moisture rising.  The children used sugar cubes, a variety of materials and food colouring for testing. They discovered that plastic was the best damp course and that tissue was the worst.
